Isn't worth to watch
21 April 2019 | by newjersianSee all my reviews

I watched that movie to the end and couldn't figure out what it's all about. Goes from predictable to preposterous to unpleasant without pausing for entertainment. It's so childish that one can think that it was done by a bad student studying movie making. Don't waste your time, just skip it.
